I don’t know about you, but this virus has caused me to be less attentive to my meditation and contemplation time. I don’t know why. I have lots of time on my hands, but time seems to be set on warp speed.
When our life is like a whirlwind or tropical storm, it is even more important to force oneself to spend time slowing down. Deep breaths, eyes closed, and heart slowing moments are even more important.
When we meditate we engage in reflection, self examination, and quiet thought. All these bring us closer to God.
